US: National Cancer Institute – Cannabis and Cannabinoids

‘Cannabinoids may cause antitumor effects by various mechanisms, including induction of cell death, inhibition of cell growth, and inhibition of tumor angiogenesis invasion and metastasis. Two reviews summarize the molecular mechanisms of action of cannabinoids as antitumor agents. Cannabinoids appear to kill tumor cells but do not affect their nontransformed counterparts and may even protect them from cell death. For example, these compounds have been shown to induce apoptosis in glioma cells in culture and induce regression of glioma tumors in mice and rats, while they protect normal glial cells of astroglial and oligodendroglial lineages from apoptosis mediated by the CB1 receptor.’

I understand cancer as our bodies own healing system that went wrong and/or incomplete. Cells created to heal an organ are incomplete and/or have the wrong DNA info. If the body does not kill them via the immune system with macrophage or by Apoptosis (cell self disassembly) then those cancer cell are falsely recognised as good cells by the body which start supplying nourishment via blood vessels and the tumor starts to grow. A group of cells growing unable to fulfill its original purpose which is to heal an organ, yet it is able to survive on its own and grow and metastise. I think the 1. key element to cure cancer is to support our bodies to create healthy cells at the first place so they can fulfill their purpose and heal organs properly. So supplement the body with all constituents of cell generation like lipids omega3:6 for cell membrane for example and all other constituents for DNA reproduction. This step alone (to my understanding and limited knowledge) can cure cancer. The 2. Step is to rid the body of incomplete cells/cancer Cells, if cannabinoid help the body recognize which cells need to be disassembled via a process called Apoptosis, then I could understand how it helps rid the body of cancer cells but does it help create healthy new Cells? The first step alone to supplement the body with proper constituents for cell production is even more crucial, just destroying bad cells alone isn't sufficient. Probably is why chemotherapy fall short as well, they do kill bad cells but does not helps new healthy cell creation. I do understand how cannabinoid helps neurological diseases (post synaptic signal to pre synaptic neuron to modulate neurotransmitters release) but I do not understand how cannabinoid helps trigger Apoptosis process. And if it does, support of healthy cell production still is crucial otherwise it would fall short many times like chemotherapy. I compare this whole process to a factory line where let's say cellular phones are built, if there are not enough parts to build the phone (software and casing) , the phones coming out of the production line will be incomplete. Now just destroying or disassembling the incomplete phones isn't enough, all the parts needed has to be provided in the first place in order to create complete functioning phones at the end of the production line.

We the people MUST stand as a united front against any and all who would prevent free unencumbered,unfettered,100% total access to Cannabis in all its varied forms and strains.
Any politician who would hinder the free proliferation of cannabis/hemp should be FIRED and brought back to the state from which they hail and discharged of their duties!
We cannot afford these "fence riders" any longer as cancer is killing far too many of our loved ones and Cannabis is the answer to many ills,not just cancer but it does CURE cancer!
Our Creator Father God gave the Cannabis plant to mankind for our health and well being and we cannot allow the FDA or any other government agency to regulate or control cannabis.
These bastards are bought and sold like a three dollar whore by the corporations who's profits are being harmed by cannabis and those corporations who want to control every aspect of cannabis like Monsanto,who is one of the worst corporations on this planet as to the harm they have caused to mankind by their products!
We MUST collectively stand and fight back against government or corporations who would rob us of this wondrous plant.

how about we take it from govt
really now the GOVT sells us our weed?

disgusting

Lynn Wilcox says:

NO! Lets┬áleave Big Phama out of it..they are nothing but a cartel wanting to make $$$..theyre synthetic version wont be the same…they have lobbied for years to keep it a schedule 1 knowing how medicinal cannabinoids are.

Elise MB says:

Awesome! Thank you for this video!

Okielawman says:

Trust me when I say this… the drug companies would go broke if cancer was cured….they would be stuck with weight loss pills and high blood pressure shit…. pain killers is their bread and butter and it is a huge part of our economy and they have some of the largest and highest paid lobbying groups in Washington…..

"Leave it in the hands of the FDA" —um…NO.

Sucks2beU says:

This is exactly why it was made illegal. It works too well and anyone can grow it causing a massive financial loss to the "drug" manufacturers. The free plant works better than the harmful toxic crap the doctors sell.
Personally its illegal so even if it works its not worth ending your life in a cage.

i bow before you sir

sprfitter1 says:

big pharmaceutical companies are working on synthetic canabioids but it's not the same! the whole plant is needed, it's so complicated of a plant.

Tyler Dillard says:

"Keep it in the FDA"??? NUTS!

oldschoolct says:

America has funded Israeli Cannabis research for over 50 years. Israel is the World leader in Cannabis research. Raphael Mechoulam was the person that discovered THC in 1964. The UNITED STATES knows Cannabis cures cancer, that is why it is ILLEGAL!

is that Peter Coyote narrating ?
